Return Information Notice - Code DV

We revised your Earned Income Tax Credit because one or more qualifying children did not live with you in California the required number of days.

Why did I receive this notice code?
One or more of your qualifying children did not live with you in California for 183 days or more. To qualify, the child must have the same principal place of residence in California as you for more than half of the year, defined as 183 days or more.

What do I need to do?
If you agree with our revisions, you do not need to contact us. Please update your records. If you have a revised balance due, please pay the amount due.
